Marc-Antoine Fortune is on the verge of signing for Celtic and may be followed by Nancy team-mate Landry N'Guemo.

Fortune arrived in Glasgow for a tour of Celtic's training and stadium facilities yesterday and talks have progressed well.

The Guyanese-born frontman is expected to tie up a transfer of around £3.8m in the next 24 hours, snubbing several teams in the Barclays Premier League.

Celtic have also discussed a deal to sign Cameroon midfielder N'Guemo and Nancy expect him to follow Fortune to Glasgow.

A statement on Nancy's official website read: "Unless there is a turnaround in the situation, Marc-Antoine Fortune will soon sign for Celtic.

"He visited the club's facilities on Monday and could quickly be transferred.

"He will probably be joined by Landry N'Guemo, who will be the subject of a one-season loan."
